Kenyan Premier League 2019-20 is here with us. After a long period of rest, our weekends are not going to be boring again as we usher in a new season from Friday.
The new season will be herald by a scintillating match between Kariobangi Sharks and Western Stima at Kenyatta Stadium at 3 pm EAT. The two teams have shown a serious antagonism in the few matches they played together and tomorrow might be even tougher as they meet in their pacesetting match.
In their four encounters, Sharks displayed dominance as they won twice and drew the rest, meaning that Western Stima have not won any.
The coach William Muluya-led side will bounce back revitalized after beating English Premier League side Everton in the Sportpesa Super Cup club friendlies during the holiday.
Sharks lost their forward George Abege to Ghanian side Asante Kotoko. But this might be a non-issue as they also roped Nzoia Sugar attacker Patrick Otieno to foster their striking power.
Western Stima, on the other hand, cannot be written off as they too acquired a Ugandan midfielder Abdala Wankuru from Sony Sugar and former Kariobangi Sharks midfielder Fidel Origa.
Following their statistics and current form, a draw might be the possible result for the two teams that ended with a barren draw in their last encounter on 11 April 2019.
